Abstract: We analyzed an episode from a course which 11 students took in the summer before their formal matriculation at Tufts, as part of a cohort-based program for engineering majors from underrepresented groups. We also conducted interviews one year later, asking students about their experiences in the course and the program. Based on that data, we argue that two aspects of students’ experience contributed to the productive dynamics of the episode and to the lasting value of the course: social caring and a shifted epistemological framing.
